08:01 AM ET 02.29 | It may be time to start dreaming of RG3 in D.C. The Washington Redskins are prepared to part with two first-round draft picks, plus other selections in the early and middle rounds, to secure the St. Louis Rams' No. 2 pick in April's draft and land Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III, according to people with knowledge of the situation. The Rams are said to be seeking compensation similar to what the San Diego Chargers received from the New York Giants in exchange for Eli Manning in 2004. That year, the Chargers drafted Manning first overall. The Giants sent their fourth overall pick, the following year's first-round pick, and their 2004 third- and fifth-round picks to San Diego for the quarterback.

I think he'd like to stay with the Redskins. That's why he's working on his towel-folding skills.

Sure, send him to the NFC East. The Giants defense, having practiced for Vick the last two seasons, will be ready for him.

He's already learned that a "bench press" is something you do with a hot iron and spray starch.

RG3 is insanely talented and he's a perfect fit for those bootlegs and rollouts Shanny loves to run. This needs to happen.

He also went to the Matt Leinart School of Clipboard Holding and finished top of his class.
